For Sale: Al Capone’s Miami Beach Mansion

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Al Capone’s family hideaway near Miami Beach is for sale.

However, you better have a fat wad of cash: the property is priced at just under $10 million.

Among the mansion’s features:

  • Seven bedrooms
  • Seven bathrooms
  • 100 feet (football-field-sized) waterfront access on Biscayne Bay
  • Verandas
  • Recreation room
  • Private dock
  • Black-and-gold Art Deco powder room that looks the same as when Al Capone used it

After purchasing the Palm Island mansion in 1928 for $40,000, the iconic gangster plotted the infamous Valentine’s Day Massacre there.

The current owner restored the 0.7-acre mansion to its original gangster glamour, just as Capone left it when he died of a heart attack there in 1947.

Seriously interested (or just curious)? View a slideshow of the mansion.
